The special follows former FBI Executive Assistant Director Shawn Henry as he searches for new clues into the disappearance of the legendary pilot and her navigator Fred Noonan. Among the newly discovered evidence from Amelia Earhart’s final flight is a photo found in the U.S. National Archives showing Earhart and Noonan in the Marshall Islands. The photo (shown above) was found mislabeled in the National Archives by former US Treasury Agent Les Kinney.
Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence is executive produced by Gary Tarpinian, Paninee Theeranuntawat, and Jim Pasquarella.
The Plot: The disappearance of Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan on July 2, 1937 is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of all time. Now, 80 years later, newly uncovered evidence from within U.S. Government archives may finally bring this case to a close. Former FBI Executive Assistant Director Shawn Henry investigates new, shocking evidence supporting that Earhart survived her final flight, crash-landed in the Marshall Islands, and was captured by the Japanese military – dying in their custody on Saipan. History’s Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence unveils original U.S. documents containing new information about the fate of this American legend, including a never-before-seen photograph presumed to be Earhart and Noonan after their crash, and how the U.S. government may have covered it up.
Additionally, Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence presents evidence verified by some of the most reputable professionals in the world including: plane parts found in an uninhabited island of the Marshall Islands by Earhart Investigator, Dick Spink, consistent with the aircraft that Earhart was flying in 1937; and an original interview with the last living eyewitness who claims to have seen Earhart and Noonan after their crash.
